#1. i modified my main menu of course,
but now i don't have access to the file manager anymore,
I guess it was a submenu item of the SYSTEM main menu item which i deleted...
only way to access file manager now is to switch skin to default estuary and use it from there....
and i also don't want to reconfigure my main menu if i use the reset menu feature in Silvo Mod :/
So anyone knows how to get to file manager within Silvo now?
thx


#2. And again about the file manager,
is there a way to simply add it to the Shutdown ''S" menu
along with the other items we see listed?
thx

Aeon Nox Silvo

Skin Settings
Setup The Aeon Nox Main Menu
Select a menu item from the left panel where you want File manager to be a sub menu item
Select manage submenu
Select Choose Item for menu
Select Common
Select File Manager
Done!

Like suggested,
I guess i need to recreate a system main menu item and
Add file manager to it. But i didnt want a system main menu :/

No way to add it to "S" menu?

Thx

There probably is but I'm not versed well enough in programming to tell you how. But it can be a sub menu item on any menu item. It doesn't have to be on the System item.

EDIT
I had some slight success altering the shutdown menu. I changed the Favorites item to File Manager. However I cant figure out how to change the label to reflect File Manager. Though it still shows Favorites it takes you to the file manager.

Is your device Windows? The options are different for Android...

Safe Bet:
You re-create the System menu item in the main menu. Then you can disable it! If you need it back to do something you can access skin settings from that shutdown menu and enable it. This will work on Android devices too as there is access to skin settings from the shutdown menu.

You do this at your own risk...if you want to try it.
I don't know what problems this can cause.
You will need to edit this file any time the skin gets an update. You will need to edit the file that comes in the update as it may include new changes.

Windows
Open your addons folder and go to the skin (skin.aeon.nox.silvo) folder. Open the 16x9 folder and find DialogButtonMenu.xml.

Make a copy of it and put it somewhere safe that way when you mess up you have a copy that's good to put back.

Edit this:
Code:
            <control type="button" id="15">
                <description>Favorites</description>
                <width>510</width>
                <height>60</height>
                <textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
                <focusedcolor>white</focusedcolor>
                <textwidth>435</textwidth>
                <textoffsetx>45</textoffsetx>
                <texturefocus colordiffuse="$VAR[HighlightBarColor]" border="35,2,35,2">button_shutdown_focus.png</texturefocus>
                <texturenofocus border="35,2,35,2">button_shutdown_nofocus.png</texturenofocus>
                <onclick>ActivateWindow(favourites)</onclick>
                <font>font14</font>
                <label>1036</label>
            </control>

To this:
Code:
            <control type="button" id="15">
                <description>File Manager</description>
                <width>510</width>
                <height>60</height>
                <textcolor>grey2</textcolor>
                <focusedcolor>white</focusedcolor>
                <textwidth>435</textwidth>
                <textoffsetx>45</textoffsetx>
                <texturefocus colordiffuse="$VAR[HighlightBarColor]" border="35,2,35,2">button_shutdown_focus.png</texturefocus>
                <texturenofocus border="35,2,35,2">button_shutdown_nofocus.png</texturenofocus>
                <onclick>ActivateWindow(FileManager)</onclick>
                <font>font14</font>
                <label>File Manager</label>
            </control>
